Estimated Local Cash Needed
3500 yen - 1000 ~ 1500 yen for lunch
1000 yen for entrance fee of temple (500yen * 2 places)
1500 yen for public transportation(One day bus pass is 600yen plus some trains)
*If your hotel is located near Kyoto subway station, it might be better to buy a combine Kyoto day pass. There is the "one-day bus&subway pass" 900yen and "two-days bus&subway pass" 1700yen.
You can buy it in advance at subway station and validate it on the tour day.
Transportation (we'll use public transport)
Meals(Lunch, snack etc.)
Travel insurance (please have your own on your travel during my tour)
*If you want to use a taxi, we can catch the taxi from point to point. Usually about from 1000 yen to 3000 yen.
*If you want to hire a jumbo taxi in Kyoto, 8hours will be 45,000 yen and it's not included parking fees. So It'll be about 50,000yen for one day sight seeing to hire a private car. It will be cheaper to use taxies when we need. If your group is 8 people(It will be 9 people include the guide), it will be convenient to hire a jumbo taxi because it is difficult to find 3 taxies all the time.
I am not a driver guide but I can arrange transportation upon request.
To hire a big taxi is about 50,000yen for 8hours in Kyoto.

Tomoko is a knowledgable, helpful, friendly guide. She was flexible and able to change our itinerary during the day, as we found we spent longer in some places than we had expected. Tomoko's local knowledge meant that she took us to the tourist sites and to a wonderful lacquer workshop where we lacquered cups and trays to take home, local shops for old kimono, knives, and clothing, and a delicious lunch at a noodle house. I recommend Tomoko to other English-speaking travellers.
